Melia, along with other hotel chains, presented here this week Cuba as a tourist product to some 30 Chilean travel agencies.
“Our goal is to promote the destination again in the Chilean market so that passengers feel confident in traveling to Cuba by the hand of Melia,” the official of the Spanish company, based in Palma de Mallorca told Prensa Latina.
He explained that they currently have 33 hotels throughout Cuba, three of them in Havana.
“The Cuban capital stands out for its history, its culture, its people, it is impossible to go to Cuba and not visit Havana,” he said. The company also has hotels in Varadero, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Coco, Holguin, and Santiago de Cuba.
Soon, Gamboa informed, a new hotel will be inaugurated in the Ancon peninsula, in the central province of Sancti Spiritus, and the Cayo Santa Maria Hotel, which was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, has been remodeled and will reopen on November 1.
When asked about the trends of tourism, he stated that although they have not reached the pre-pandemic levels, they have good passenger margins and the hotels are open to welcome tourists and provide them with the service offered by Melia.
